Amazon clarifies future of Clarkson's Farm as fans worry show will be cancelled

Amazon has clarified the future of Clarkson's Farm.
Questions have been raised of what happens next for the reality series, following Jeremy Clarkson's comments about Meghan Markle.
The former Top Gear presenter was forced to apologise over remarks he made in a column for the Sun about the Duchess of Sussex.
In an article that has since been deleted by the outlet, the 62-year-old referenced the infamous 'shame' scene from Game of Thrones.
Speaking about Prince Harry, Clarkson said: "I actually feel rather sorry for him because today he’s just a glove puppet with no more control over what he says or does than Basil Brush.
"Meghan, though, is a different story. I hate her.
"Not like I hate Nicola Sturgeon or Rose West. I hate her on a cellular level."
He went on: "At night, I’m unable to sleep as I lie there, grinding my teeth and dreaming of the day when she is made to parade naked through the streets of every town in Britain while the crowds chant, 'Shame!' and throw lumps of excrement at her."
Clarkson was roundly criticised over the comments, with many disgusted by his apparent visceral dislike of Markle.
Dozens of MPs even demanded that he apologise for the blatant example of misogyny.
And some also called on Amazon to drop him.
But fans of the series will be pleased to know that that's not the case.
Speaking to LADbible, the streaming site confirmed that the second series of Clarkson's Farm will air on 10 February.
And not only that, but a third season will also still be going ahead as planned.
Clarkson revealed this week that he'd sent a personal apology to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex for his hurtful comments.
In a lengthy statement posted on Instagram earlier today, he said: "One of the strange things I’ve noticed in recent times is that whenever an MP or a well-known person is asked to apologise for something, no matter how heartfelt or profound that apology may be, it’s never enough for the people who called for it in the first place.
"So I’m going to try and buck the trend this morning with an apology for the things I said in a Sun column recently about Meghan Markle. I really am sorry.
"All the way from the balls of my feet to the follicles on my head. This is me putting my hands up. It's a mea culpa with bells on."
He went on to say that while he normally reads what he sends beforehand - as any writer should - that day he was in a hurry and so he just hit the 'send' button.
"It was a slow rumble to start with, and I ignored it. But then the rumble got louder. So I picked up a copy of The Sun to see what all the fuss was about," he said.
"We've all been there, I guess. In that precise moment when we suddenly realise we've completely messed up. You are sweaty and cold at the same time. And your head pounds. And you feel sick.
"I couldn't believe what I was reading. Had I really said that? It was horrible."
